Specifies the pipe support properties. To view the properties:

  1. Click the plus (+) sign next to PipeSupport to expand the category.

  2. Click a plus (+) sign next to pipe support.

  3. Click the actual data table.

    Some of the components do not have all properties specified. If a property is not listed for a pipe support, then that support does not use the property. In the list below, some descriptions contain specific support names because they are only available with those supports.

Show Optional

Specifies how the variable length can be selected in the Pipe Support Data dialog box. This property appears under the Component Table list, but is unique to the PipeSupport data table. For more information on the Pipe Support Data dialog box, see Support Modeler Palette in the CADWorx Plant Users Guide.

  • 0

Specifies that the components in the Pipe Support Data dialog box use the default data in the Data Table.

  • 1

Specifies that you can select specific sizes for the components of a pipe support in the Pipe Support Data dialog box. The sizes listed are based on the size of the support already selected. If duplicate sizes are available, they are listed here. Click the ellipsis under Data Table to make this selection.

  • 2

Specifies that you can select all sizes for the components of a pipe support in the Pipe Support Data dialog box. All sizes for parts available in the data table are listed when this option is selected. Click the ellipsis under Data Table to make this selection.
